Surely with the psalmist I too can sing, "Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over." Nine years ago we came to this city as strangers; but soon found a precious friend in The Christian Science Monitor. The first metaphysical article we read was entitled "God," and awakened my thought joyously to a higher, better understanding of the Father. Eagerly I looked for the next issue of the Monitor, and found an article upon Christ Jesus, which emphasized the fact that the teachings and practice of Jesus are ever available. This article sent me to my much loved Bible. I began reading the gospels again, marking with a blue pencil all of Jesus' words written in the present tense—the "nows," the "to-days," every "is," and every "are."

This was only a beginning. As I continued to read and study, chronic constipation, ulcerated sore throat, and nervous indigestion faded away. After several years, glasses were laid aside when the belief that sight depends upon matter gave place to the fact that sight is spiritual, of God. With the help of a loving practitioner a third son came to me under most harmonious conditions. I am grateful for the many healings that have come to the children through their understanding of Christian Science. Two and a half years ago my husband, also a Scientist, was sent overseas for service in France. On board ship he suffered an accident caused by a tidal wave breaking over his quarters at night, which resulted in eight ribs and his collar bone being broken, contusion of the hips, and many bruises. The second day after, he was taken to a hospital in Liverpool. He cabled home for Christian Science treatment. About five weeks later, on Armistice Day, he was able to be out and to enjoy the happy celebrations of that day. In January following, he was ordered home and immediately took up his business. He has never felt any ill effects whatever.
